Romney: Carbon [dioxide] not a health threat

Mitt Romney: Carbon not a health threat - Darren Samuelsohn -
Mitt Romney says he doesn’t think carbon pollution threatens human health and would not green light EPA climate regulations if he were in the White House.

The GOP presidential candidate signaled the reversal to one of the Obama administration's top environmental policies during a town hall meeting Thursday in Derry, N.H. This came about six weeks after he acknowledged during a campaign stop that global warming is real, a statement that won him praise from Al Gore.

"I think we may have made a mistake," Romney said Thursday in response to a voter's question about EPA regulating air pollution from coal plants under the Clean Air Act. "We have made a mistake is what I believe, in saying that the EPA should regulate carbon emissions. I don’t think that was the intent of the original legislation, and I don’t think carbon is a pollutant in the sense of harming our bodies."

The man is amazing. To those who have been watching this from the beginning it has been obvious that AGW was nothing more than a fraudulent attempt (as stated by Jacques Chirac) at world governance. Yet this man who, just as his peers, has been at the center of information for most of his adult life just now he realizes that they "may" have made as "mistake".

Amazing how many of these people have come to new insights regarding the green movement and AGW.

I wonder what final piece of scientific information convinced ALL of them after all of these years? Wait..wait..I know. They have all been reading the polls. After all….statistics is considered a science….isn’t it?
